I favor doing what is easiest, and that is keeping the OIDs as they
are.  In the end what difference does it make where the number
was assigned.  This may not be the "pure" solution, but it is just
a number that some application has to interpret.

We tend to get into very long discussions over issues that do
not really have any long term consequences.  I suggest that
whoever (Harry and Ira?) is responsible for editing this document
make a decision and the rest of us just live with it.
